Donald Trump has repeatedly accused the media of “fake news.” He has taken the position that his attempt to ban Muslim immigrants was not an attempt to ban Muslim immigrants. Sarah Palin has famously declared that she would “baptize” people SHE PERCEIVES to be terrorists by torturing them. It never occurred to her that there was a fundamental problem with anyone determining that someone was a terrorist. For example, if Donald Trump followed her recommendations, and determined that the Pope were a terrorist, Trump could then waterboard him because Trump “thought” the Pope was a terrorist.
Remember the Pope suggested Trump wasn’t Christian. Pope said of Trump:
“A person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Trump retaliated against the Pope saying:
“No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith,”
Now Sarah has posted this picture to her Facebook:
The immediate question you should ask yourself is “Does Sarah Palin still think Barack Obama is the President?”
The next question should be, “Does Sarah even know who John Adams was?”
The next question might be, “Has Sarah ever read the First Amendment to the Constitution?”
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The next question should be, “Does Palin know who Thomas Jefferson was?” He wrote a letter to John Adams explaining:
“The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus by the Supreme Being in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. … But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding….”
These are not the words of a man who wishes to establish a Christian theocracy.
Our founding fathers explicitly and clearly excluded any reference to “God” or “the Almighty” or any euphemism for a higher power in the Constitution. Not one time is the word “god” mentioned in our founding document. Not one time.
Our nation includes 5-6 million Jews. There are millions of Muslims in America. There are a substantial number of people in America of the Bahá’í faith. America is made up of Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Taiosts, and a variety of lesser known religions. There are also many Americans who are agnostics, atheists, or humanists.
It is contrary to the Founding Fathers, the US Constitution, and the reality of America to say that we are a Christian Nation.
